It is believed we shall need more accpmodations than are so far reported.—Adv. . - M27—2t The proposition of establishing a community High school was voted on this afternoon. • There* was only one voting, place, .which is the City Hall. Both men and .women voted on this proposition. The polls will open -at 8 a. m. <an"3 close at 6 p. m. It might 'be of interest to the voters to know that .there is already a High school tax -being collected and being used to support various High sohocils over the county. This tax is c-allect a non-High school tax. The H'igih 'school getting any part of tese .funds is not allowed to maintain ..'•High school course of more than three' years. -Ai-\ High school dis- iricts of tlie county except those m'- g-anlzed into community or township ffigh schools Wave -to pay this tax. The limit of tax rate under the non- High school law is 75 cents- on the $100. As the two and :three-year Hig.h schools in'^the county increase in number and size,' the rate of -taxes ,in the non-High school territory -becomes,., higher. Another fact which tends to increase the tax rate is the •withdrawal -of large tracts of the rnore valuable property from the no-nJHdgh : school area by the .organization of 'community and -township High schools. For example, E'.kvillo, Campbell Hill and Makanda iha>ve recently voted community High schools. This reudces-.the value of the non- JHigh school territory and a higher ;-ate must be levied, and 'Carbondale, ^hould she~fail to organize the community High school today, must bear ,h'er part of the increase. 'As th'is tax ,rate is raised Carbondale community .will pay out- more and more each ; year. -.Within a short time it will ipay sh '-amount of $15,000 annually, iaud will never be 'able to consume its 1 own High school, as at present lorganize'd, more than $6,000. iBut -any possible -increase in taxes -is a minor item when comp''.! with the'boys and girls of Carbondale community and the school privileges they 5re entitled to. High school iwo'rk and '-the spirit of High school are things distinct and apart from 'any o'thei' school .work, and High school -preparation is demanded by all higher institutions of learning ,in ;the United .Sfetes. Even Chough the .pupil should not be aWe 'to up liin-iversTty work, if ih-e has passed through and caught the spirit of. a well organizes and properly equipped •High school, ,he is better prepared to meat te dssues of life. • Every community is under the very strongest obligations to give to every .boy and jgirl the opportunity to attend High school. iCarbondale is not, nor'has she :been, negligent in this ma'tter, but the necessity for a local organization has never teen so urgent as now. To •a • extent,. this r.eed has 'been met by .'the Normal Hig.h school and by the small district High school, but the demands for High school train- irig"can no longer be met adequately by -these schools^ All the other Illinois cities in -which state normal scftools are'located, found some time ago that they could not meet "the iH-igh • school demands of their ocm- munity, and there are now in these town's, community, township and district High schools, all 1 maintaining •fully accredited and approved, four- year courses. Of all ..the state normal cities, Carbondale and community alone are without these privileges. As a .matter of- interesting cbm- ,pai'.ison, the following data of state normal school cities from the State •School Year 'Book: iCHarleston has 4-year district High school -with 10 teachers and 276 pupils. UetK.alb has 4-year community High school with 22 teachers and 380 pupils. Macomb has 4-year community High school with 17 teachers and 420 pupils. •Normal has 4-year district High school •vvit!T'!Sr teochers and 184 pupils. . • Bloomin.gton has 4-year district •High school, with 33 teachers arid 776 pupils. 'Carbondale 'has 3-ysar non-High school with 4 teachers 'and 60 pupils. iBfoomingtton proper has no normal school .but Normal is practically a .p*arT of Bloomington. Of this list of noraa'al cities only two 1 , Bloomirag- FARM BUREAU MOVEMENT TAKES ON BIG INCREASE H. G. iSastelly Launches Drive !n Williamson County. With 1000 New Members. Jackson County Shows New Members and New Interest Among Farmers. T.' .The county i'aim bureau movement in Southern Illinois is taking on an impetus as a result of -the efforts of H. G. Easterly, field, representative of the Illinois lAgr'iculture Association and the Faflm Bureau movement. Mr. -Easterly has ibeen working in Williamson county the last week and rep'oi'ts .one of the most encouraging and finest • gains in the number of mem'ber.s in.. .-any .Southern Illinois county. The recent gain in William-, son shows more* than 1000 mem-be-rs. .Mr. Easterly also repents large I'ains in the number^nf new members for Jackson county,. He and Mr. Thomas, county farm bureau .head and'county advisor naive .been wonk- jng together for an increased npem- berslwp in this county. The results have shown a marked interest and activity in the movement im Jackson county. iNext week the drive starts in Union county. Mr. Easterly states he expects to .bring Union county out of it, netting -a large membership in the drive. The county farm bureau of -Union county plans to take up actfve work in connection with more fruit raising, Union county being particularly adapted to fruit growing, the farmer's are pfenning to take up the growing of fruit more extensively. ;Wjth regard, to fruit, growing, /the Jackson county farm era ore ilso planning to -boost fruit raising in sections where at would -be more profitable than straight farming. At the same time, however, making every effort to educate the farmer's with tfie proper methods to rehabilitate the 'Worn out sections of Jackson county. ' Baptist Ministers Return From Planning Drive Rev. J. \V. Merrill and Rev. T. O. McMinn of Carhondale have been in Chicago this week in conference over the allotments to be made to the Baptist churches of Illinois in or.der to raise the $100,000,000 planned by the Northern Baptist Convention at its meeting last spring at Denver. This is to cover a .five year period and Includes all denominational expenditures for, missionary and educational purposes. . . There are a1>ont forty four churches in Egypt which affiliate with the Northern. Baptist'Conven- tion.. Aside from the-, churches at Mnrphysboro, Cairo, Benton and Carbondale these churches are village and rural . churches or stria! city churches. One hundred eighty thousand dollars is allotted to these churches. About half of this amount must be assumed by the four larger churches. A meeting has been called by the two ministers of representatives of thesp churches to meet in Carbondale next Tuesday to adjust the allotments. The canvass for this Baptist financial gathering will take place during the ten days beginning on April 22nd.

'•._ ' The' most spirited and hotly contested - school''elcction ever held in' Makanda township came off- last Saturday:. The question was the. creation of'a high school district here.

Mexican war, • nor ' of the display proceeding- tlie Civil War, but \vas fully equal to that of three years ago, just prior to the late- world war.' The vast canopy of gorgeous; crimson flames encircled the heav-j ens, dividing the" earth's canopy into two hemispheres, tb) darkness of the south contrasting, vividly with the brilliancy of the north. An arch of resplendent Auroral, glories spanned the entire north. Tjinumer r able scarlet and crimson columns of almost dazzling beauty-rose, from the northern,.horizon to the Zenith. The arch was sharply defined, ris- 'ing from the'horizon j'ust north of; due west, spanning -the heavens,] reaching the horizon just south -of; due east.
